Market Street Designer Showcase

Due to the Thanksgiving holidays, some of the Market Street Designers were a bit delayed in getting inky with the new releases, so today Market Street is having a Designer Showcase of all the fabulous new sets!  I used two sets, Essential Holiday Elegance and Flurries, to make another quick-and-easy Christmas card.
Could that background be any more gorgeous?  I'm amazed at how well all those intricate snowflakes stamped (I'm also amazed that I'm still waiting for the ink to dry, even after hitting it with the heat gun.).  I stamped the sentiment on a strip of white paper, added some Echo Park Dots and Stripes paper, and a fabulous card was finished in under 15 minutes.

Make sure to check out all the other inspiration at the Market Street blog. Remember, from now until December 7th, all new release stamps are 15% off or you can get 25% off plus free shipping if you order the entire November Bundle, so don't delay!

Look how detailed those flakes are??? What kind of ink did you use? I have Colorbox Frost White, and if I don't emboss it it never seems to dry.
Love this card - the stripes of the red seem to give the snowflakes movement too. Love it!!
